I need some ideas guys. Help me out. The mom wants the cake to have some personality. I will be using some caution tape, a bull dozer, a backhoe, and one other toy on the cake. The cake is due in a week 10-3-2009, so send me some ideas or pics. I was thinking of crumbling oreos to make dirt or rocks and load them on the dumptruck and have the bulldozer pushing a load of them on the ground (cake).
Sounds like you are doing pretty well in the idea department. Good Luck!
I love using the chocolate rocks for boulders and Wilton has gray/silver flakes I also used for gravel and oreos for dirt.
don't have a picture but the dump truck with the bed down spilling out rocks (i've seen m&ms used for color) is really cute
